For our application we want to have a status page which is hosted outside of the rest of our infrastructure so in case there are issues in our data center we can post updates for our users and our users will be able to access them.
We registered a blog on Blogger and set it up with
status.xyz.com. Everything seems to work fine.
We need to perform some maintenance at our datacenter which will sever all connectivity so we're unable to have a redirect using nginx or apache. We'd like to do this with a short TTL CNAME DNS entry.
app.xyz.com could be CNAMEd to
status.xyz.com. When I setup the CNAME and go to that URL I get a Google broken robot 404 page. I figure I must need to let Google know it should associate traffic to
app.xyz.com to the blog served up by
status.xyz.com. But I can't see anywhere to do this in Blogger.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
